Blog-tember Challenge- Day 1 - About Me

I started following Bailey Jean, over at Brave Love Blog, as a way to learn more about art journaling, and Bible journaling in particular.   While I love the idea, I just haven't gotten started yet, but still hope to do so in the future.  Life is busy, and sometimes things just get put on the back-burner.  I go through phases where I blog a lot and then go weeks, and even months, without a post.  I love to blog, but it does take a good bit of time, which seems to be in short supply right now.

Enter the Blog-tember Challenge---a daily link up that begins today.
Brave Love Blog

Bailey has suggested a prompt for each day to help help jump-start my blogging again (which I desperately need right now).   I'm going to give it a try.  I don't guarantee posting every single day, but hope to get as many done as possible.
Today's prompt:  Introduce yourself.  Here goes.  I'm Linda  . . .
Wife of two years to Ron.

Mother to Jana and Callie.
Mother-in-law to Jordan and Rob.  Step-mom to Carmelle, Terry and Tyler.   And grandmother to Michael, Adellelyn, Archer, baby D and baby B.
Those are my very favorite roles in the whole world, but it isn't all of me.

I am also a believer, teacher, crafter, seamstress, scrapbooker, sister, amateur photographer, runner , "junker" and friend.   As you can tell from those descriptors, I'm MUCH better at making a mess than in cleaning one up, so if you come to my house, be prepared.
 I love to travel, to hike, to be outdoors, to learn, to create, to play, to laugh, to serve and to explore.

I don't consider myself much of a writer at all, and am terrified by public-speaking.  I am definitely an introvert (just the thought of going to a party with lots of people makes me shudder), but have gained more confidence as I've gotten older.  I like working out early in the morning (after I've made myself get up, that is), but am a complete klutz---and have the scars to prove it.

Hope you'll join me as we all learn more about each other through this challenge.

If you write, you're a writer! And since blogging is a form of writing, I definitely consider you a writer. You have a beautiful family! You mentioned you love to travel; do you have any favorite places?

Miss Paula said...

Yeah - a kindred spirit! I loved reading your intro... beautiful grand babies. I cannot wait to be a grandma -no buns in the oven yet tho. I'm curious, what part of the country are you in? I am in Southeastern Wisconsin. I look forward to getting to know you over the next month!
